Barrel and bolt, that's it right?
It sounds like it might be fun, I'm thinking about it and wanted to get some opinions.

I did the change from 22lr to 17 Mach2 on my 10/22. The 17 Mach2 is a really good varmint round due it's flat trajectory and I like to shoot it at the range also -- it's seems to be naturally very accurate. I didn't do the EABCO setup but close to it -- I relined a stock carbine barrel and bought the heavy charging handle from Brownells. The reason I did a relined carbine barrel is I wanted the lighter profile barrel for field use. Relining a barrel can be expensive but I already had all the right stuff so it was no big deal. If you're wanting to try the Mach2 conversion and don't want to break the bank, the EABCO setup is at a good price range and shoots very accurately.

When it comes to fun shooting like plinking and blasting stuff I still prefer the 22lr -- it's cheap enough to shoot all day and still have some ammo left over.

Can't argue about them parts! I like to screw around making stuff -- you are definitely not screwing around! Unless you've already reworked the trigger, the stock Ruger trigger setup requires the robotic fingers of the Terminator to operate so you'll need to correct that or the fancy parts are kinda waisted. What scope are you going to top it off with?

The trigger was replaced by a Volquartsen unit a few years ago.
I will probably be sticking with my Nikon scope 3-9X40

I got my new Volquartsen barrel today and it says no metal cleaning rods or metal barrel brushes or warranty will be void, wierd.
Recommended way of cleaning is a patch on the end of a fishing line and pull through.

The PatchWorm works great.

I got a used 10/22 at the local shop and I'm wondering about the black coating on the reciever.
Paint or powder coat?
The new barrel was a tight fit due to the excess coating. I had to tap it in with a plastic mallet even after sanding the excess.
I can still get it out easily if I want to detail strip.
Anyway, here she is.

ETA: I just discovered that the 25 round mags don't like being loaded with these things past 10-15 rounds, Crap
